PYP – Online Learning

Dear students and parents,

According to last spring’s experience of online learning and teaching, feedback from students and some parents and some recommendations of the Ministry of Education, the PYP teachers agreed on the following format of online learning:

  • On Monday at 8:20, students (parents) will receive the instructions for the whole week’s work.
  • Every day, students and homeroom teachers will meet via Teams at the specified hour:

Kindergarten:  10:15 – 11:00
1m:  8:30 – 9:15
2m:  9:15 – 10:00
3m:  9:15 – 10:00
4m:  9:15 – 10:00
5m:  8:30 – 9:15

  • If students need additional help or advice from other PYP teachers, they are available via Teams.
  • Students can send their completed work via Seesaw during the week, but all the work has to be sent via Seesaw by Friday at 12:00.

The objectives of this week’s online learning are for students to:

  • Become more independent,
  • Meet daily with the homeroom teacher,
  • Organize time efficiently,
  • Hand in the completed work on time,
  • Get familiar with two learner profile attributes,
  • Practice certain ATL skills,
  • Practice math skills in Seesaw (instructions during the Teams time),
  • Reading for pleasure (English Reading Badge),
  • Reflect on their work.

The Ministry of Education currently predicts that online learning will last two weeks. As soon as we find out any further information, we will let you know.

Students, be sure to read the instructions carefully because we do not want you to do more work than needed.

Your PYP teachers

 

Halloween in 1M

Halloween was also celebrated in 1M on Thursday, October 22, during the afternoon programme.  The children were read a scary story, and afterwards, they enjoyed some papercraft activities. At the end of the event, they all received a bag of surprise treats! 

Notification!

Dear students and respected parents,

The Slovenian government has decided to prolong the Autumn Break for one week. Hence, the school will be closed until November 8, 2020. During the next week, our government will decide what will follow. As soon as I receive more information, I will notify you.

I urge you to follow the measures and recommendations of the medical profession so that we can return to our normal routine as soon as possible.

I wish everyone a happy holiday season and a pleasant extended vacation, even without socializing. Let’s act responsibly and stay healthy!

Best wishes,

Klemen Strmljan
Head of School

 

 

5M Halloween Party

​On Thursday, October 22, 5M celebrated Halloween. Despite it being held during ‘tricky times’, and unusual circumstances, it was a great success.

Our students had lots of fun with decorating pumpkins, and the muffin icing activity went really well. The students remarked that the muffins were really delicious!

The time passed quickly and some of the Halloween activities were extended into the Afternoon programme. In the end, each student received a treat bag to take home!
All in all, it was a really enjoyable, fun day!
